Builds and Baselines

  • Linux Linaro 3.17-2014.10 is released (CARD-788):
    • based on v3.17 release
    • updated linaro-android topic. In particular, CONFIG_IPV6=y is no longer the requirement for linux-linaro tree builds - no more build failures for mainline defconfigs!
    • GATOR version 5.19 (same version as in 2014.08 release). gatord is fixed to build for ARMv8.
    • dropped multi_pmu_v2 topic by ARM LT (no longer used)
    • updated topic from Qualcomm LT (include IFC6410 board support)
    • replaced integration-linaro-vexpress topic by integration-linaro-vexpress64. Starting from 2014.10 release, linux-linaro kernel tree will use the mainline support for 32-bit vexpress boards. integration-linaro-vexpress64 carried over FVP Base and Foundation models, and Juno support from the integration-linaro-vexpress.
    • updated LLVM topic (uses llvmlinux-2014.10.01 branch - the most recent v3.17-based version of llvmlinux-latest)
    • dropped ARMv7 big endian topic(obsoleted; most of the patches are upstream)
    • added ILP32 patch set v3 (https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/9/3/704) with one minor build fix

    • config fragments changes:
      • distribution.conf: CONFIG_IPV6=y replaced with CONFIG_IPV6=m
  • Linaro Toolchain Binaries 2014.10 is released (CARD-790):
    • based on GCC 4.9 and updated to latest Linaro TCWG releases:
      • Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.10
    • first release built with cbuild2, adding more maintainable code base and automatic testing
    • binary tarballs have been splitted into 3 parts. As a result, you can install only the parts needed:
      • gcc-linaro-*.tar.xz - the compiler and tools
      • runtime-linaro-*.tar.xz - runtime libraries needed on the target
      • sysroot-linaro-*.tar.xz - sysroot (a set of libraries and headers to develop against)
  • Linaro builds of AOSP 14.10 is released (CARD-789):
    • built with Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.10
    • AOSP master build for Juno is cleaned up. It now builds without any patches on AOSP projects. It builds by adding 9 projects to AOSP manifest related to device, kernel, toolchain and helper tools. (CARD-1664)
    • LSK Android testing issues are fixed for ARMv8 Fast Models
    • bc tool is added to ARMv8 Android Juno build (REQ-559)
  • Linaro OpenEmbedded 2014.10 is released (CARD-787):

    • integrated Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.10
    • fixed shadow securetty for SBSA compatible UART
    • switched OpenJDK to upstream aarch64 hg repos
    • dropped mongodb from LAMP images
    • upstreaming:
      • updated acpica 20140828 release
      • updated acpitests 20140828 release
      • updated pm-qa to 0.4.14 release
      • added aarch64 support to libunwind
      • fixed PHP build warnings
  • Linaro Ubuntu 14.10 is released (CARD-786):
    • updated packages: Juno firmware 0.8.2, LSK 3.10.58/3.14.22 and linux-linaro 3.17 kernels, xf86-video-freedreno 1.3.0
  • Debian arm64 support is going very well. More than 90% of the packages are built. The effort is on track to get next Debian release with an officially supported arm64 architecture. (CARD-1586)
  • KVM CI loop on Juno is completed. The remaining work is happening on Xen CI loop. (CARD-1611)

Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK)

  • The v3.14 based LSK based on
    • kernel.org 3.14.19 stable tree
  • Updates to:
